Poem About a Mother Absent from Her Daughter's Life
No Stories yet, You can be the first!
Published: Feb 2006
I wish you were here every day,
To hug me, to ask me if I'm doing okay.
I wish you were here when I got my first doll.
So you could join us at the Town Square Ball.
I wish you were here when I played dress up,
So I could get into tons of trouble with your make up.
I wish you were here to see my through high school,
Then maybe you would know that I am not a fool.
I know its' ok that you are not here with me,
Because everywhere I go, there God will be.
It's ok not to have a mother,
Every day I still go a little further.
One day I will have my own little girl,
We will laugh, dance, run, and twirl.
Into the evening we will drink lemonade on the porch swing,
I will teach her how to be a mother.
Because one day she will have her own daughter.
I wish you were here with me
Watching, so you could see what a good mother I will be.
